February & March

 Another exciting event I forgot to write about in February, was finding out that we were going to have a boy.  We were thrilled!  Luke & Katelyn were both excited to have a baby brother.  Ashley was counting on a baby sister so she was pretty sad at first.  She got over it quickly and is now very excited about having a baby brother.  

On March 23rd Kevin & I celebrated our 10th anniversary.  The next week we were able to go on a 3 day trip to San Francisco all by ourselves.  This was the first time we had been gone from our kids for more than one night.  I know, it is sad, but it just hasn't worked out before.

My mom was so wonderful to come and stay with the kids and fill in as mom and the taxi service.  I'm so grateful for her and that she made this trip possible.

We originally wanted to go to New York for our 10th anniversary, but with me being 24 weeks pregnant, I didn't want to be on a long flight and spend a lot of money when I wasn't sure how I would be feeling.  So instead we took a short flight to San Francisco.  I had been there as kid, but Kevin had never been there before.  We did do a ton of walking and I tired pretty quickly, but we still had a great time.
We stayed in a great hotel, ate yummy food, went on an hour long cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge & around Alcatraz, explored Fisherman's wharf, watched some amazing street performers, saw The Hunger Games movie, had chocolate at Ghiradelli square, and just enjoyed spending time with each other.  I hope we don't wait so long to go on another trip together.
